These were both done at Andrews Farm in Wading River. They have always been so welcoming to artists who come to sketch or paint. I did the ink-only sketch first starting with the umbrella because I just knew Denise would come an open it before I was done. Sure enough she did open the umbrella and moved around the gooseneck squash that look like a pile of large worms. lol
Next I pulled out my watercolors because the scene was just crying out for color. Of course the open red umbrella just sets it off nicely.
